I can't imagine surviving ADD without my dogs. My current boy is a very calm Golden Retreiver named Alby. I have had a lot of fun training him and have learned a lot from him. Unlike humans, his body language is always consistant and easy to read. I work very hard on keeping my body language consistant for him.
I have long thought that pets can provide a level of assistance for people with ADDHD but I have never come across any research. I find that I am much calmer when Alby is with me and he makes being social so much easier. He is a great segway. Does anyone have similar thoughts or know of any research in this area?
